KS3/4 PSHE - Teenage Dads (video) http://www.teachers.tv/video/31170 KS3/4 PSHE - Teenage Dads
Following three young fathers in Sunderland, this programme looks at what is being done to help teenage fathers, often ignored in the issue of teenage pregnancy.
An almost invisible group, they are often regarded as irresponsible young men who leave their teenage girlfriends holding the baby.
Here the three teenage fathers share their stories in a bid to shed light on what their lives are like, and how reliable support can have a profound impact on them, their children and their families.
This programme is designed for use in the classroom.
KS3/4 PSHE - Teenage Pregnancy (video) http://www.teachers.tv/video/21524 KS3/4 PSHE - Teenage Pregnancy
Although conception rates for the under 18s are at their lowest (2008) for 20 years, England and Wales still have the highest number of pregnancies in Western Europe, with more than 40,000 babies born to teenage mothers in 2005.
In this programme, designed to be shown to pupils in the classroom, we follow two young mums-to-be in the weeks leading up to the birth of their babies: Kevani who is pregnant and in care; and Adelle, who has found that the support of her family has proved vital.
School Matters - Teaching Abortion (video) http://www.teachers.tv/video/31173 School Matters - Teaching Abortion
A look at how schools can provide factual and balanced information for students to make up their own minds about safe sex, pregnancy and abortion.
Sex and Relationship Education is to become compulsory in schools, and abortion education can be a key part of both PSHE and RE. But schools and teachers often feel anxious about teaching the subject.
Here, one school shows how pupils helped design the SRE curriculum, a sexual health centre shows how young people are advised about abortion in their communities, and Charles Edward Brooke School, London, shows how it is tackling abortion education head on.
With over 20,000 teenage girls terminating their pregnancies annually in the UK, this programme takes a timely look at abortion education.

Teens and sex. It happens. Not every teen is having sex and not every teen is abstaining. We hope the Midwest Teen Sex Show will create a space for frank discussion of all things related to teen sexuality. Broadcast media shies away from any real exploration of the topic, and they forget that not all teens live in Orange County.

The teaching of sex education in (Australian) schools is under fire from experts ?and students. Paper by by Caroline Milburn.
The trends, along with Australia's high abortion rate among adult women, have triggered alarm in Federal Parliament. Earlier this year Democrats leader Lyn Allison and Liberal Senator Judith Troeth called for a national inquiry into sex education to reduce unwanted pregnancies. Senator Troeth says the poor health trends raise doubts about the adequacy of school-based sex education.
"We need to establish what is being taught because no one knows. It's largely left up to individual schools as to what they will teach in the curriculum," Senator Troeth says.
What parents REALLY think about sex education http://www.whatparentsthink.com What parents REALLY think - about different forms of sex education
For years groups such as Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS), Planned Parenthood, the Alan Guttmacher Institute, Advocates for Youth and similar organizations have claimed that 80 or 90 percent of parents support comprehensive sex education (also known as "abstinence-first" or abstinence-plus sex education).
The Coalition for Adolescent Sexual Health contracted the services of Zogby International to survey parents with questions that actually reveal the subjects taught by comprehensive sex education. Zogby created questions using verbatim the topics contained in the Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education. Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS), in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Planned Parenthood and similar groups, developed these guidelines in the early 1990s. These guidelines are widely considered to be the official description of comprehensive sex education.

Scarleteen http://www.scarleteen.com/ Scarleteen.com served up sex education and information for almost two million young adults, educators, parents and mentors last year? That we have over 16,000 registered users at our message boards? Find out more about our commitment to this vital information.
While we at Scarleteen do not hold to the notion that telling teens to go have sex is a better solution, we strongly feel that belying judgment and furnishing them with the facts they need to know REGARDLESS of whether or not they are sexually active readies them to learn to make their own choices, and develop their own systems of ethics and values from themselves and their families is our job as educators and sex-positive advocates. One cannot make a decision from a position of informed consent without being informed.

Sex Etc http://www.sxetc.org/ For years, teens told us (the Network for Family Life Education) that their sex ed classes were "too little, too late," their parents didnít talk to them about sex and they were left on their own to figure out all this confusing stuff. They also said they'd like to read about stuff like love, sex, relationships, HIV/AIDS, violence and other issues, especially if teens wrote those stories. So we said, great. Letís start a teen-written newsletter.
